Description

The fanciest product in the Void Elite line, the Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless gaming headset, is yet another entry into the extremely busy gaming headsets market at around $100. This segment of the market has a few notable features and a considerable number of very average products. The Void RGB Elite Wireless offers the elements it is named after wireless audio and colored LED lights and adds 7.1 surrounds to the mix.

The Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless comes with the standard battery performance you would expect from a wireless gaming headset. The re’s a micro-USB charging cable, a 2.4GHz RF wireless dongle, a small foam tip for the connected microphone, and that’s about it. The Corsair Void RGB Elite wireless gaming headset has a reasonably heavy metal frame, soft fabric cushions on the ear shells, and a strap that adjusts to fit even large heads comfortably.

Everything about the design feels solidly constructed. And despite all this, from the moment I put it on, it felt like it was hanging on a wire. Even slightly abrupt head twists made it an inch away from taking care of my desk. Unfortunately, Corsair connects several functions of the Void RGB Elite Wireless’ with proprietary software. The iCUE app offers most of the same features as Razer Synapse or Logitech G HUB but in an equally mediocre way.

Using the app, you can adjust and coordinate the colored LEDs of the Void Elite and all other Corsair peripherals you use. If that were all there was in the app, it would be a bit faint, but in any case, completely unusable. However, iCUE is also tied to some of the actual functionality of the headset. If you want to use the surround sound of the headset, it’s done through the app.

Despite the annoying integration with the iCUE app, gaming with the Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless is generally a reasonably positive experience. Surround sound is available on the PC, and games such as Overwatch and Fortnite work like a charm with it. Oddly enough, it’s not immediately clear which standard of surround sound is used here, whether it’s Dolby, DTS, or something else, but that hardly matters.

Playing on both Playstation 4 games as well as Dauntless and The Outer Worlds sounds excellent. However, the USB dongle is too big to fit in the front of a PS4 Pro, which means you have to connect it to the back of the console, right next to the exhaust port.

Corsair Void RGB Elite
Our Verdict
The Corsair Void Elite RGB Wireless is a solid, albeit unobtrusive input into the gaming headset's space. It brings wireless surround sound at a lower price than usual, but if that's not necessarily the feature you really want, there are better options for cheaper.
PROS
  • Wireless audio via RF means no lag
  • Accurate microphone
  • Cloth headphone pads are decent for glasses
CONS
  • Surround sound and battery meter tied to the app
  • extremely loose fit
  • RGB lighting drains the battery much faster.
